Classroom Discipline: A System for Getting the Administration to See Discipline Problems Your Way.
Taylor, Billie W., II
Classroom discipline is one of the biggest difficulties in teaching. This book describes a system of classroom management that combines the characteristics of a good teacher with those of a successful disciplinarian. The main message is that responsibility for good behavior belongs with the students and that teachers should spend more time teaching than on discipline. This approach is a practical one which has been tried and proven in many school districts, where the author taught and helped other teachers with classroom management. Each section of the book presents many strategies for coping in the classroom. The sections are the following: (1) rules; why they don't do the job; (2) routine: how to keep students busy and why; (3) control: what to do when the routine fails; (4) enforcement: what to say during confrontations; (5) documentation: what to write during confrontations; (6) distractions: what to do when... Five appendices list the details of good classroom actions, rules, and routines. (VM)
